'Rapture' Prophet Camping: Did I Say May 21? I Should Have Said Oct. 21

He says he's not going to talk about Judgment Day anymore and that his Family Radio network will now focus on Christian music and related programs.

Oh, and religious broadcaster Harold Camping also now insists that the world will be destroyed on Oct. 21, The San Francisco Chronicle reports.

And what about his infamous prediction that The Rapture would begin on May 21, this past Saturday? That millions of believers would be whisked away?

And now, if he's not going to talk about it again, perhaps we shouldn't either (at least until October). Copyright 2011 National Public Radio. To see more, visit http://www.npr.org/.
